Prosecutors re-filed an April 29 letter on the public record in Manhattan federal court, revealing previously redacted evidence. The raids took place on April 28.
They said 18 electronic devices were confiscated during searches of properties belonging to former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and his company, Giuliani Partners LLC, which represents ex-President Donald Trump. The computers, according to prosecutors, belonged to Giuliani.
The letter requested that a “special master” be appointed to ensure that nothing protected by attorney-client privilege was disclosed to the government.
Giuliani’s links to Ukraine are being investigated, as is whether he broke a federal law governing lobbying on behalf of foreign countries or organizations.
Giuliani has claimed that his actions in Ukraine were carried out on Trump’s behalf. Giuliani was leading a campaign at the time to press Ukraine for an investigation into then-presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
The FBI had no excuse to conduct the raid, according to Giuliani.
“The Biden Department of Justice has completely ignored clear evidence (which the FBI has had for over a year) of texts and emails on Hunter Biden’s hard drive of failing to register as a foreign agent on several occasions, child pornography, money laundering, and 30 years of the Biden Crime family taking millions and millions in bribes to sell his public offices,” he said in a press release on his website.
“Rather, the Justice Department determined that serving (at dawn) search warrants for electronics at the home and law office of former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani was a higher priority,” it added.
